Veterans Day is this Friday and unlike a lot of our holidays most off us will be required to head into work. However, that doesn't mean we can't take time out to thank a veteran. Many Hudson Valley communities will be holding celebrations that you can attend. You can also seek out people in your circle that you know have served our country and make it a point that day to say thank you in person.

It has become very common for local and national business to extend offers to service people and their families in honor of Veterans Day and this year the list is impressive. The American Legion has been kind enough to compile a list. If you know a veteran please pass along the info so they can take advantage of the opportunities available to them on Friday and throughout the week.

The list includes restaurants Red Robin, Chipotle, even Cracker Barrel. Home improvement stores including both Lowes and Home Depot are offering discounts. There are even travel businesses and grocery stores. Our newest grocery chain in the market TOPS is offering 11 percent off your entire order if you are a veteran. Just about every type of store or service has made it a point offer our veteran's something to honor their hard work.
